2019-20 Topps Hockey Stickers Box Break #3

This is my third and final box of 2019-20 Topps Hockey Stickers. With each box containing 250 stickers, my hope was that I would get pretty close to having a complete 630-sticker set. The first box gave me over 39% of the set, while the second box put me at 62%. While I know that I am not going to get every sticker that I need, my hope is that I am at a respectable enough number that I could finish the set off in a few trades.

What I Got in My 3rd Box

200 regular stickers; four were doubles within the box.

50 foil stickers. There were no duplicates. 

Like the previous two boxes, each pack had exactly what was offered: four regular stickers and one foil sticker. There were only four doubles total in this box, which is acceptable.

Breakdowns by 100s

Here is what I got in each grouping of one hundred

0-99

3o regular stickers
10 foil stickers
40 stickers total
(16% of the box)

100-199

30 regular stickers
9 foil stickers 
= 39 stickers total
(15.6% of the box)

200-299

28 regular stickers
5 foil stickers
= 33 stickers total
(13.2% of the box)

300-399

29 regular stickers
6 foil stickers
= 35 stickers total
(14% of the box)

400-499

40 regular stickers
8 foil stickers
= 48 stickers total
(19.2% of the box)

500-599

39 regular stickers
2 foil stickers
= 41 stickers total
(16.4% of the box)

600-630

4 regular stickers
8 foil stickers
= 12 stickers total
(4.8% of the box)

Out of the 200 regular stickers in this box, I needed 92 of them for my set, which is a little less than one in every two stickers. As for the foils, I hit the jackpot and needed 46 of the 50 foil stickers. 

After three boxes, I ended up with 533 out of the 630 stickers, and still needed 97 stickers to finish my set. 

I was also left with 217 doubles, triples and even a quadruple, to trade with other collectors. And I will have to trade because — unlike Panini — Topps does not sell individual stickers directly to consumers. Your choices are to either keep buying packs and boxes or to trade with other collectors on a site like Last Sticker, which focuses mainly on various sport and non-sport sticker sets. 

Fortunately, a generous collector who reads this blog gave me a whole bunch of Topps stickers that I needed for my set, so now I am only 12 stickers away from finishing the 2019-20 Topps Hockey Sticker Collection. If you want to trade, leave a comment or email me. 

Getting about 84% of the complete set after buying three boxes is pretty good — not great but not awful, either. Once I fully complete this set, I will give the 2019-20 Topps Hockey Sticker Collection a proper review.

  1. Good morning Sal,

    My daughter is absolutely into her Topps 2019-2020 NHL sticker collection. Would certainly love to help her complete the set.
    Let me know which ones you are looking for to complete yours and hopefully we can help.

    1. Hello Yannick, thank you for reading. I will send an email to see if I have any stickers that you need.
